Bridge crane components

Bridge crane are material handling equipment used for lifting and moving heavy loads from one point to another. Bridge crane usually traverse a horizontal path and make use of an electric hoist and trolley to lift or lower objects.The bridge crane is often called an overhead bridge crane or overhead traveling bridge crane. It is also commonly referred to as a suspended bridge crane and is composed of three major components: a bridge, a runway, and an electric hoist and trolley.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane bridge

The bridge is a horizontal beam that is positioned along the path where goods and materials are to be transported. It bridges or connects the place where materials are located to the place where materials are to be deposited. The extremely useful piece of equipment can have one beam or two. The single beam variety are ideal for light or moderate material handling applications. The double beam variety are designed for loads weighing 10 tons or more.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane runway

The bridge can be adjusted horizontally along the runway. The runway beams are located on each end of the bridge crane. They are typically attached to the walls of the industrial facility. For heavy loads, it is best to connect the runways to a wall structure for maximum safety. For light applications the free-standing industrial models are available.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Electric hoist and trolley

The electric hoist and trolley, along with the bridge and the runway, make up the equipment’s three main components. The electric hoist and trolley is a hook-and-line system that runs along the length of the material handling equipment. It is used for electric hoisting up objects and then dropping them at appointed destinations.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
With the aid of this material handling equipment, loads can be easily transported back and forth between opposite sides of an industrial facility. The unit moves along the length of the facility while the electric hoist and trolley moves along the width of the facility. This equipment is vital in the material handling operations in various industries. They are commonly used in the steel and automobile industries where they are used to carry and transport steel and raw materials.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

These all important pieces of machinery are also indispensable in the upkeep and maintenance of paper mills and other business facilities where require heavy supplies and equipment are frequently moved and relocated. Industrial businesses, especially those involved in the construction industry, can save on operating costs by purchasing their own bridge crane as opposed to renting the bridge crane.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Ten advantages of bridge crane

No need to clear aisles.

Bridge crane can move places where no other piece of equipment can reach. Have you ever had your fork trucks’ path blocked and you had to divert manpower to clear an aisle. Well an bridge crane can make it around the obstruction with ease. If an independent running pushbutton station (a pushbutton station on it’s own track so it can be controlled anywhere along the bridge) or radio remote control is provided as the control method, your operator can be in guide himself around the obstructions and still control the bridge crane. You can arrange your plant floor around how you do business and not worry as much about obstructions on your factory floor.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Clean Floor space.

Your floor space is cleared up because your supports for the bridge crane are out of the way. Typically your bridge crane provider can come up with a column design that is freestanding and can be aligned with your building columns or along walls. You can choose a ceiling mounted bridge crane (typically on new building designed for the loadings) or you can support the bridge crane from the floor. Sometimes a combination of the two can be used with some supports from the floor and some from the ceiling of your building.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Safety.

The bridge crane operator can put himself into the optimum location to safely move the load. The fork lift creates blind spots which are inherent with the structure around the operator. The fork lift can be prone to overturning (which is the leading cause of death with a forklift), Pedestrian can be struck by a forklift, driver or employee can be crushed by a forklift, or the driver can fall from the forklift. Bridge cranes can also be outfitted with anti-collision devices to keep them from colliding with bridge cranes in the same bay or end stops.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Customizable and adaptable.

Bridge crane are very versatile when it comes to below the hook accessories. The types available are limitless. Below the hook accessories include spreader bars, c-hooks, weight scales, custom designed lifting tooling, manipulators, and vacuum lifts to name a few. Many bridge cranes have several different below the hook tools which are changed out for the particular job.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Heavier payloads.

Heavier loads can be handled while keeping your plant personnel away from the load. Forklifts require your operator to be within close proximity to the load. With a bridge crane the operator can rig the load and then move away from danger when using the above referenced radio or independent traveling pushbutton station.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Complete coverage.

Your entire plant can be covered with no dead spots of coverage. A bridge crane can travel right over the load, even without a clear path or aisle. This allows the most flexibility when setting up your plant design.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Inexpensive operating costs.

Operating costs are very inexpensive with a bridge crane. From no energy requirements for a completely manual system, to a very economical three phase system. There is no need to charge batteries or have tanks filled. The bridge crane is always ready to work!hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Ergonomically friendly.

A recent trend is to help the worker in their work cell. Small ergonomic work cell bridge crane have replaced the worker moving the product manually and allowing them to pick up the product with a lift assist. A typical 50 pound load can now be picked up with the bridge crane and the operator will only see one half of a pound of push pull force at the hook. When a work station bridge crane is equipped with custom lifting tools the job can be done with higher productivity and less product damage.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Increased productivity.

Whether it is handling larger loads or taking the load off of your workers, they will be more productive with a bridge crane. In high cycle applications with lighter loads a work station bridge crane is easily justified with ROI in a very short time.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

More diverse work force.

With a bridge crane your work force can include both sexes, as well as smaller workers who might not be able to do the job of manually handling the load. As our work force ages, and includes more females this is an even more important consideration.hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Besides bridge crane, Dongqi Hoist and Crane is able to provide types of cranes, such as gantry crane, jib crane, electric hoist, and electric winch, etc. Please contact us to get your ideal material handling solution. hHqHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
